A midsized rear-ported bookshelf, featuring a 5.25” low-frequency transducer and a folded motion high frequency transducer, which MartinLogan claims replicates much of the performance of their high-end elecrostatic speakers. May need to be paired with a subwoofer if sub-60Hz bass is a priority.

These small monitor speakers from NHT deliver clean imaging and accurate sound due to ruggedly braced cabinets, and don't seem to suffer from the inneficiency of many competitors in their class. Their stated 85 Hz low end might be a stretch however, so it is best to set these speakers to ”small” and set up your receiver crossover accordingly.
